Reid also stated they are not considering moving Pryor to another position.
“No, not right now we haven’t,” Reid said. “We think he’s a quarterback, and I think that’s what he wants to be.”
Pryor did not play during the 2014 season. He has a career record of 3-7 as a starter.

On the team's final injury report of the week, the Chiefs list defensive end Allen Bailey(concussion) as out for Sunday's game. Bailey missed last week's game as well.

The following players are listed as probable: Husain Abdullah, Donnie Avery, Jamaal Charles, Anthony Fasano, Junior Hemingway, James-Michael Johnson, Joe Mays, Chris Owens and Sean Smith

De'Anthony Thomas
News
De'Anthony Thomas was drafted out of Oregon by the Chiefs as a running back. Though he worked in a hybrid role as a rookie, he was listed by Kansas City as a running back. 

That could change in 2015.

According to the Kansas City Star, Thomas said he's worked this offseason on becoming more of a complete receiver.

“Yes, I have the ability to run the whole [route] tree,” Thomas said. “That’s what I’ve been working on this offseason. I’m running all those routes in the sand [during beach workouts]. And once the time comes to come on the grass, I feel like it’s going to be a lot easier because I’ve prepared myself.”

Thomas ran for 113 yards and totaled 156 receiving yards in a reserve role. He made a big impact in the return game, combinging for 833 punt and kickoff return yards with a touchdown. 
With Thomas transitioning into being more of a receiver first, he's modeling him game after Steelers wideout Antonio Brown. Both are shorter targets, making the comparison fitting for Thomas. Thomas is listed at 5-feet-8, 176 pounds and Brown is 5-feet-10, 186 pounds. 
Brown had a career season in 2014, totaling 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns. 

“I’m very impressed with Antonio Brown,” Thomas said. “He’s a great player, and I feel like I have the same ability to make the same plays like him and help the team and be that [kind of impact] player.”

DeVito's original deal cost the Chiefs $5.4 million against the cap. His restructuring reduced that figure to $2.9 million, according to Pro Football Talk and the Kansas City Star

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid likes what he has in linebacker Dee Ford and he wants to get him more playing time this year, according to the Kansas City Star.

Reid hopes that Ford will build off of his performances at the end of the 2014 season.

“I think (you’ll see) more of what you saw at the end of the season,” Reid said. “Dee will take another step forward. He’s very familiar with everything.”

The head coach also knows that Ford must improve against the running game, but he can get after opposing quarterbacks. 

“We know he can rush the passer,” Reid said. (But) it’s always going to be a challenge because offensive coaches had an opportunity to study him and see what moves he’s got, so you’ve got to keep adding to that repertoire of pass rush moves as we go and hone those in even better than what you were doing.”

Ford, 24, played in all 16 games as a rookie registering eight total tackles, 1.5 sacks and one pass defensed.

Knile Davis
News
Rest assured, Jamaal Charles owners, there's no running back controversy in Kansas City.

The box score for Week 15 against Oakland may suggest otherwise. Charles led the Chiefs with 12 carries for 52 yards, sure, but backup Knile Davis scored both the touchdowns out of the backfield, plunging in from 3 yards out midway through the third quarter and then scoring on a 70-yard catch-and-run a couple drives later.

But it was all a matter of timing. Davis' touchdown run came after Charles took a hard hit the play before and had to be tested for a concussion. Charles returned for the team's next drive, but the Chiefs went up three scores then, putting the game out of reach. It only made sense to bring in the backup running back, who then broke a long one when a defender stumbled.

Davis wasn't even effective with his nine carries, five of which came in the fourth quarter. He gained a total of 11 yards. His value to Fantasy owners remains as a handcuff to Charles. You wouldn't want to start him on his own merits Week 16 at Pittsburgh.

James-Michael Johnson
News
On the team's final injury report of the week, the Chiefs list defensive end Allen Bailey(concussion) as out for Sunday's game. Bailey missed last week's game as well.

News

“He’s doing well in that treatment process, but that’s a tough process to go through,” said Clark Hunt, who visited Berry in Atlanta in January and gets regular updates on his status.

Jeremy Maclin
News
Former Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin apparently has no ill-will toward Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly. Although the Eagles could not match the Chiefs' five-year, $55 million contract offer, which Maclin signed in mid-March, Maclin is still a fan of Kelly, who has overhauled the Eagles' roster this offseason.

"I still believe in Chip," Maclin said, per The Philadelphia Inquirer. "I think Chip's going to do great things here. I have the utmost respect for him. Unfortunately, we couldn't get something worked out. But at the end of the day I'm very excited about playing for Kansas City and playing for Big Red."

As well as Maclin not being brought back, the Eagles traded LeSean McCoy and quarterback Nick Foles. They also released defensive end Trent Cole and offensive lineman Todd Herremans.

Maclin missed the 2013 season -- Kelly's first in the NFL -- due to a torn ACL. However, he returned in 2014 to post career highs in targets (143), catches (85) and receiving yards (1,318), while tying a career high with 10 touchdowns.

Travis Kelce
News
Although Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce led the team in receiving in 2014, head coach Andy Reid has even higher expectations for him in 2015, according to the Kansas City Star.

Reid believes that the best is yet to come for Kelce.

“You’d think the natural progression would be even more and better, and he was pretty good last year,” Reid said. “He’s tremendously talented, loves to play the game. He’s like a little kid out there. He loves to play.”

Despite the high praise from Reid, the coach knows that there is still room for improvement for the 25-year-old.

“You could see the progress every week in a positive direction,” Reid said. “We kept adding to his menu there, so the plays we wanted to dial up in formations and motions, the running backs and tight ends, they have to know what they’re doing with those. So he continually got better with that as time went on."

After recording no stats as a rookie due to being placed on injured reserve, Kelce tallied 67 receptions for 862 yards and five touchdowns in 2014, all were team-highs.

He’s a great leader, he’s a tremendous person, represents the club well on and off the field. We’re looking forward to having him back this year, hopefully good as new. You mentioned that his contract is up this year. There will be a point in time where we address that. But it just hasn’t been germane to this point."
